the bless command is nice.

Wouldn't it be reasonable to bless both the file and the directory?

Couldn't the bless command check the machine type of the file and
change file type on ppc files and bless the file for i386 files?

It's OK if the command has parameters that specify what to do and are
explained in the help but it should just do the right thing when you
specify the file to bless.

Would it be possible to make an i386+ppc efi boot CD this way? Would
the i386 grub boot on 64bit systems or are two CDs needed for i386 and
